"After the demise of the House of Montefeltro in 1508, rule shifted to the House of Della Rovere, situated in the small but culturally important and geostrategically well-positioned Duchy of Urbino. This study illustrates the opportunities seized by a small dynasty to legitimize its rule and pursue its ambitions, and develops a hypothesis about the cultural and political rise and fall of the Urbinos in the 16th century"-- Provided by publisher.
